What pilot nurses said about this course:
- “This course has substance. There is a lot of information that can be beneficial for so many patients and caregivers.”
- “I have to give credit to the individual who wrote these test questions. They did a great job. There is so much information in each chapter yet they chose questions that I feel are very relevant and specific to the most important information.”
